WOW! This was extremely cool! Combined with a free audio guide, the walk through the ruins was not only educational, but so much more authentic than a lot of other museums. Instead of seeing old things in glass cases, you get to walk through the...More

This amazing treasure, tucked under the Cathedral of St. Pierre, is perhaps the most impressive archeological site in Northern Europe. An amazing, large and well curated site covering an extensive area underneath the Cathedral and the surrounding area of the Old City of Geneva, it...More

Had no idea it existed till I took a tour of the St. Peter's Cathedral. The history behind this archeological site is well worth the 8 CHF.

From the exhibits before the cashier and what we could see of the rest, we decided that it wasn't worth paying for.

I would like to visit similar places but this disapointed me. It's pile of stones only. You don't see anything interesting here. I can compare this place with other archeological sites that I've seen before in Carcasson, Rome, Tunis, Cambodia, Myanmar, Egypt and other similar...More
